"Whenever I have a question, I like to search to see whether it has been asked before. But all I find are irrelevant threads. What am I doing wrong?"
|Searching the forums can be a challenge!|
There are two tricks to finding the information you need from the forums, or even team threads:
- First, go to the forum most likely to answer your query, like Questions, Discussions, Studio or your team.
- Next, go to the topmost search field on the page. Begin to type your query.
- When you get five keystrokes into your query, some choices will pop up.
- Select one and voila! your answers.
|Select your choice, titles or inside posts|
Use a Google Search
Another method is to make a search from Google. Something like "Etsy xxxx."
Be aware that in a Google search, the results need to be indexed first. So your results may be older than the first method described.
If you use the Google search method for a teams search, the thread must be public.
I hope that this journey into searching Etsy's communities has been helpful!
